BIO

Jacquelyn Johnston is a PhD Candidate in the Global and Sociocultural Studies Department at Florida International University. Johnston spent over a decade working in nonprofit and government animal welfare organizations, earned an MBA from FIU and a MS in Veterinary Forensic Science from University of Florida. Her current research intersects biopolitical analysis and more-than-human geography. She focuses on the political invocation of ferality in government programs managing stray populations of dogs and cats, incongruous legal requirements for culling animals as legislatively determined by custody, links between animal advocacy and political response as "humane" programs, and the arbitrary and contingent ways ferality is operationalized in animal welfare debates between domestic and wild life advocates.
